The event will begin with a “speed geeking” (“fast geeky”) session where NGO leaders will see dozens of different technologies that could be useful in the work of their organization (of the basic technologies such as social media, to higher technological tools such as mapping and data management applications). NGO leaders will then have the opportunity to participate in several training sessions to learn more about the individual tools.
